Hi, I’m working on the 2011 ATUS and in need of help to understand the unit of time use variables for elder care.
Let’s say, I download “caring for and helping household members: adults” variable from the BLS Published Tables, a drop-down under the Time Use tab on the ATUS-X site, and tabulate it. The result looks like:
I wish I knew what 1.527526 means. Would you mind letting me know if it’s the estimated hours on a given day, week, or month?
Thank you very much!
